1914-18  • Lampshade Hat Lining

In fashion around 1917

This distinctive style of ruched gathered like on some lampshades fabric lining appears on photographs in the latter part of the First World War.
The shape of hat remains the standard domed crown and modest brim but it is usually worn tilted back to expose the new feature under the brim.
